The only ones who think that wine is the answer are winos and I know that you are not that.

Cape Golden Delicious apples always tasted much nicer than French, I wonder will we be able to buy those again.

I've had SA cape apples from Sainsbury's, depending on the time of year also Tescos also had SA fruit in Lidls (nothing to do with the EU) we imported $8.5 billion dollars worth of goods from SA in 2018.

Hi rhydboy, I happened to see that before UK joined EEC that UK was Australia's second most important trading partner. Joining the EU has reduced that to 12th because of tariffs and the like. Thus Australia appears to be really looking forward to the new UK.
I think it almost certain that the NZ situation is similar. Thus it seems possible that the NZ economy and individual wealth and jobs in NZ will improve now we are leaving EU

Good Morning Milkman, many things have changed over the years since the UK (is it still united) joined the Common Market/EU. Britain once had a stranglehold over NZ and Aus and the populations of both countries have roughly doubled. With climate change we, all of us, are facing new challenges and we need to adapt. NZs economy was controlled by Britain now both NZ and Britain are subject to world forces and the caprice of an American President who should still be in infant school. Britain is in for turbulent times and is now facing facts that were not evident when the referendum was taken. Best of luck Tredegar.

18 years ago I was on holiday in South Africa and visited an estate that grew only golden delicious apples. The company 'cape' ran their own school for children of workers families.The estate supplied 95% of their produce to the UK and welcomed the EU directive that apples had to be labelled name and source; they were concerned that other producers could sell Golden Delicious of inferior quality.
Milkman, On sale this week at Aldi's is a NZ Sauvignon blanc for£4.99 Beautiful taste Don't hang about!! It sold out last year in 2 days

We've never had to worry about the availability of wines from Australia etc, why does everyone think we're going to get produce now, that we've been getting for years anyway?
